THE STORY OF The Hen & Chickens Theatre Bar

Conveniently located close to Highbury & Islington tube station, the Hen & Chickens Theatre Bar is a well-established watering hole in this culturally-rich London district.  Just a short stroll from Highbury Fields and a 10 minute walk from Arsenal Stadium, the pub is perfect for a spot of pre- or post-match refreshment.
